Forum rules
ImageThis is the forum to share your recent aviation photos with the rest of the community, being photos not older than six months at the moment of topic opening. Theme-based topics, not about recent events, should go into the sub-forum.
Although we will not screen beforehand, we reserve the right to delete any images, especially if clearly unsharp or otherwise low in quality. For more information on how to upload you images, check this post.
In topic titles, please use airfield names in stead of just codes, and be clear about what kind of photos your viewers can expect (e.g. CIV/MIL, location etc.).

Finally, bring any photo criticism understandable and to the point, not cynical or offensive! Simultaneously, do not feel offended by criticism per se, but simply explain your motives, taste et cetera, or ignore if you wish so.

Hard to decide if we should go yes or no this day. Forecast was pretty accurate, with lots of sun in the morning and a steady cloud base in the afternoon. The main attraction had flown two missions that day, the ones in the afternoon being the same as in the morning. But I am pretty happy with those 4!

First visitor of the day

As I had heard, the Austrian EF.2000's would fly around 9:00 LT, but this day they appeared on the taxiway around 10:00 lt... Dummy load and no A-4 went up with them.

Nice visitors were a Lynx, CH-53GA and the former Black Tiger (2014) Tornado ECR..

All 7 A-4's were seen today, but only two of them flew a mission.

And, as a nice bonus as it was already a successful day, the special colored EF2000 of TLG71 flew also two missions

The C160 seems to be a bit more susceptible to crosswind than the others!
Or maybe the first landing of a new recrute? :lol:

Crosswind? Which crosswind? :D ( the wind wasn't strong, cross yes, but the weather vane didn't move much at that time.. but maybe it is different when landing a C-160..)



Thanks Guys for the likes.

I noticed three A-4's had flown that day.. ( sorry, no number cruncher)
